As a police officer going through a divorce, your pension is, more often than not, the asset that holds the most value, which is why it needs to be dealt with by an expert solicitor. Officers and police personnel who don’t seek expert guidance from a professional who can provide the necessary help, often find themselves being given incorrect and sometimes conflicting legal advice.

Our police family law team here at Gorvins are experienced, understanding and knowledgeable when it comes to the often complex issues surrounding police pensions.

It is quite possible that there is a pension disparity between spouses or civil partners going through a divorce or dissolution, which may result in a more contentious divorce. There are a number of ways to deal with disparity in pension entitlement between ex-spouses, such as: offsetting, sharing, attachment and a deferred lump sum.

These legal terms may not mean much to you as a police officer but you can be rest assured that our lawyers will speak to you in jargon-free language to make sure you understand each step of the process. We will also work diligently to ensure you receive the entitlement that you are deserving of. Each case is different from the next; this means it’s important that you speak directly to one of our specialist who will give you an honest assessment and let you know about the next possible steps. Call us on 0845 6347 999 or email police.divorce@gorvins.com.
